I’m on a Panel… October 6: the “(NY)TimesOpen 2.0: Open Government Event”

Personal note: It has been a little while since I’ve updated this blog, mostly because I seem to spend my blogging energy updating my beautiful 4-month old daughter’s blog (yay!). Now back to business…

I am excited to be a participating in this series of “Times Open” events hosted by the New York Times. I was invited to join by Derek Willis, The Times’s government API guru, who I met through my work as part of the New York Senate’s CIO Team and our Open Senate effort. Derek is doing brilliant work there, turning the venerable news organization into a true data platform, and helping them redefine what it means to “cover a story”.

Open Government

Next up in our TimesOpen 2.0 series is an evening about Open Government. Open Government allows for great governmental efficiency, transparency and citizen participation.

We’ve pulled together a lineup that will showcase government data from multiple angles — from the people who are opening up the data, to the developers who are putting the data to use, to how the data is being used in the Times newsroom.

TO2.0: Open Gov will be held Wednesday, October 6 from6:30–10 p.m. at The New York Times.Registration is now open.
